August 19 is World Photo Day. To honor the occasion Disney is making it World Photopass Day at the Walt Disney World Resort, with extra special photo opportunities. Princesses will also share the spotlight in conjunction with their Dream Big, Princess campaign. My daughter loves this new campaign.

You can add a one day Memory Maker for $59.00 in your My Disney Experience App. The Memory Maker is a very nice addition to your Disney experience. Those are the people that you see wearing the vests and holding cameras at the parks. They will take you photo at a character meet and greet or at various locations and then scan your magic band. You can also scan your bands to the ride photos and keep them. It’s something to consider for your next Disney trip.
